I just successfully rebuilt an alternator on another car. It had 100K on the odometer, and it was known that alternators fail shortly after 100K on those models. I'd like to not worry about the alternator during interstate driving.

How about the 2010 Murano? How long do the alternators last? Mine has 110K on it. I can get a rebuild kit for $50. It includes the bearings, brushes, voltage regulator, but not the slip rings.

not sure on 2nd gen muranos but my 4th gen maxima's alternator lasted until ~190k.

where'd you find the rebuild kit? kindly post a link or etc so that I can keep it in mind as, when the time comes, i'd prefer to rebuild mine rather than buy cheap aftermarket or questionable rebuilt by others. thanks.

Here are some links:


When I rebuilt the alternator on my Mercury Sable it wasn't intuitive on how to take things apart and put them back together. The web site I bought the kit from ( https://alternatorstarterrebuildkits.com/ ) had a youtube video to walk me through all the steps and techniques to do it properly. I'd've been completely clueless on how to do it without the video.

I don't think you can predict the service life of alternators with any accuracy. My wife's last BMW was at 170K miles on the original when we sold it.

There are many other things I'd worry more about on a road trip.
